Delton Gerdes


I work primarily in watercolor, having learned some unique techniques that allow me to create a realistic image that is also a little loose and has a color working that is left to itself many times, “ a happy accident”. I have learned to embrace that and let color express the feelings or emotion of the subject matter while staying true to the real world – sometimes.

As most know, it is in the last 10% of completing the art where it finally “has a voice and starts to sing”. I love putting that last small highlight or dark definition that completes the art, My Ah-Ha moment!
